ARMENIA WINS FIRST SVT PREVIEWS SHOW
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – The Swedish Eurovision broadcaster, SVT, has aired the first of its preview shows for the upcoming contest in Copenhagen. “Inför Eurovision Song Contest 2014″ aired last Friday with hosts Christer Bjorkamn and Malin Olsson, who also commented on the first nine entries of this year’s show. Guest panellists Kitty Jutbring as well as Rennie Miro (Head of the Swedish delegation in 2013) gave their opinions too.
The panel then had to agree on the best of the nine songs they heard. They had trouble dealing with their Swedish bias and decided to not vote for Sanna. They were quick to agree that they liked both Estonia and Armenia and took a vote. Kitty voted for Estonia, Rennie voted for Armenia, Christer voted for Armenia, and Malin also voted for Armenia, after considering Estonia. The panel thus decided that of the nine songs, Armenia has the best chance of doing well in Copenhagen.
The second episode will see Dennis Borchner from the Pink Pistols and Linda Bengtzing give their thoughts on this year’s songs. Eurovision veteran Charlotte Perelli as well as Christer Lindraw will judge the songs in the third show while Lina Hedlund from Alcazar and Henrik Torehammer will appear in the fourth and final show.
